Since the time between talks is in the range of a few minutes (5 at best),
we can't expect people to be very efficient in looking up maps.
We need to have incremental directions at every place to guide folks
plus a "You are here" kind of map in front of every hall which details
the position of this hall in relation to every other hall. Plus volunteers
Last year we had a lot of issues with people trying to find the
2nd building from the main building since we didn't do some of these
basic things. I am hoping it will be better this year cuz of the rather
longer gap between talks but it is better to prepare well.
